January 26, 2015

Hello family!
Well our normal internet place that we go to doesn't have internet today so we are at this other place that doesn't have AC or anything and today is hot! It is already 94 degrees and its only 10:50 am... So I am pouring sweat right now. But things are going well here. So we have like 5 really good families that we are teaching right now. Our family that is closest to baptism is Izidio and Inocencia. They were a family that had been taught in the past but never quite progressed all the way, so we passed by, set up a lesson and sat down with them and they accepted everything this time. They marked the 21st of February as their date and then did almost all their documents last week! So they are super solid. Izidio is a really awesome guy with a ton of potential to be a leader in the church one day! We also have Cisco and Celia. We had Family home evening at their house last week so I sent the picture of us at their house. They also are working to try and get married and baptized on the 21st. After we have Nordino and Isabel, same story. We have Alexandre and Chinha, they are still undecided. Better, he is undecided. If it were only her decision, they would already be doing the documents, but he is still undecided. And then our newest family, Costa and Lili. We haven't taught them the Law of Chastity yet! So ya things are going well here in our area! The families in Inhamizua are doing well but I think its more a matter of spiritual preparation. They aren't quite ready yet. But that's OK because we will still be able to visit them when we go up there. Speaking of which, did you guys get that stuff figured out with coming here and what not? Mutual is coming along well. We are trying to just improve the program more or less. We have the district president scheduled to speak and it should be a very special fireside!! Oh my goodness... I remember when I first got here, all the missionaries said wow you sweat a lot, but by the end of your mission your body will adjust... hahahahah ya right. I still pour sweat 24/7. And yesterday at church we had over 200 people jammed into a tiny chapel and we had no energy. So yesterday was the most reverent sacrament meeting ever! But it might have to do with the fact that everyone was sleeping haha. Ya I still talk to Marshall and Bowen every week. It sounds like they are doing well. I also just realized that Tchae only has about 3 and a half months left! Not much at all. Also, the other picture is of the pet turtle that is at the mission office. We took some pictures with him when we were there on Wednesday. He just hid himself haha. But it was a successful week. Elder Stubbs only has two weeks left so we will have to make it a good last two weeks! I love you all and hope you have a great week!
